Jin Ah KimResearcher of the Week:
Jin Ah Kim

Meet Jin...
She is a Biological Sciences major and a URA Scholar. Her future plans is to continue her education in medical school and maybe working in a research lab with biomedical interests.

Her research will explore the migratory pathways of the Baltimore Oriole. She will use a harness to attach the geolocators onto six Baltimore Orioles in various parks in Maryland from April-July 2013. The geolocators will constantly store data points until we recapture the returning birds in the following spring to remove geolocators, download and analyze the data. This information will be essential in studying patterns in migrational movement and timing which is important for both basic understanding of animal behavior and the conservation of our state bird and other orioles.
